Identifying the Problem
Government agencies and testing laboratories provide statistics, data, and research to identify emerging safety issues
Identifying the Solution
New technology is created to mitigate hazards not addressed in previous editions of the NEC
This technology is then tested by a third party testing laboratory to ensure safe everyday use and compliance to safety standards
Implementing the Code
New technology is presented to the public and technical committees for consideration in the NEC
New code requirements are revised by NFPA's committee on the NEC
Public, expert, and consumer feedback is taken and reviewed
Code is now complete and is presented to states for adoption
The majority of NEC changes are installation safety standards
Enforcing the Code
The NEC is updated every 3 years
Electrical contractors use the NEC to ensure products are safely installed
Code enforcement inspections verify that installation meets code requirements
